This book can get very confusing at times so you should write things down. Also before you read this you should make sure that you know the song, "America the Beautiful" or else you won't understand anything.

My grandmother sent me this book and she always sends good books. Plus Julia liked it, even though thats not the reason I want you to read it (I'd have you read it whether Julia liked it or not). I haven't actually read more than the first few chapters though.

My Favorite Book, have read it 5 times!!!! The second time, i forgot everything except the twist ending! So, I took notes on each character, their personality, and occupation! It sounds dumb, but it helps SO much!

The Westing Game is an absolutely incredible book. It is a fast passed mystery with the perfect blend of hummer and intrigue. Its cleaver word-plays keep you thinking through out the whole book. Every time you think you’ve put it together your proved completely wrong! Although the first part is a little strange, keep on reading it and you’ll be in for a big adventure and a lot of late night reading vigils! I would recommend this book to anyone. Happy reading!

This book is about a rich millionare who everyone thinks is dead and ends out having a bunch of people he picked play the "Westing game" to see who is worthy of inheriting his fortune. My favorite charactor is Turtle because she was so adventurus. This is my absolute favorite book, and I really suggest you read it!

The Westing Game is a wonderful book, though I had to read it 4 times to catch all the author's humor and clues!! It is about 16 heirs to a $200 million dollar fortune. They are each paired up and given some clues and told to find the murderer of their town's owner: Sam Westing.

I liked this book because it is suspenseful if you stop reading the book at a cretin time. I also like this book because it is a mystery. It has a very cool mystery that you have to try to solve. That is why I like this book.

I like this book because it has a mystery, a murder mystery to be exact. It was also very suspenseful. By suspenseful I mean you don't know who did it. You think it is obvious but it is something way different. Also it is a put down by that I mean that you can't just put down the book and walk away you HAVE to know what happens. What I mean also by mystery is I like big mysteries, and this one you have to finish to the last page to figure it out. I like suspenseful, mystery, and put down books that is why I told you what they mean. Plus that is how I like them.

I think The Westing Game is a very good book. It had many fun filled characters and lots of twists and turns. It was, although, a bit confusing at times, and I didn't like how some things ended up in the book. Other than that, this was one of the best books I've ever read. So I would suggest this book to anyone in their teen ages and loves mysteries!!
